Regardless of th fact that it was
show day, and all the wild animals
were in town, besides lots of other
yer ple, tha city fa hers were able to
gather themnelves tci'ether on Mon
day evening for a regular meeting of
the council, with a goodly attendance.
Mayor Van Vactor presided, and
Ccuncilmen W. O. Minor, Uornett
Bariatt, Currin and Kirk present.
The presentation of bills for the
month took up the fore part of the
meeting. These were a little in ex
cess of the usual budget, owing to the
extra amount of strret work that has
been done the couple of weeks,
and in detail were as follows:

The committee on streets and pub
lic property reported to the council
that they are progress. ng with the
work of the new well which they are
digging to furnish water for street
sptinkling purposes; that they had
already reached a suffinicnt flow of
water and would go no deeper at the
present, waiting until the diy season
corned on, and thfn if the well should
show a depreciation iu the flow, to dig
deeper.. This committee also made
its report as to the work they had
already preformed in the grading of
the stretes and reported tho grading
of the north end of Main to the
bridge, the street leading to the depot
and beyond and Chase street out to
beyond the properly of Arthur Smith.
They will not likely proceed with any
work on other streets at this time, as
th.y fear it may turn a little too dry
to d i a successful job.
Councilman Currin is keeping the
matter of hard-mrf jcing alive in the
council, and does not iuil to have
something of note to offer on the sub
ject at each meetiug.
As stated before in these columns
the council is fully wise to the fact
that such woik as has been done is
only of a temporary nature, and just
as fast as they cau get shaped up to
do go, they will undertake the work
of hard-surfacing the principal streets
of the town, to say nothing of the
other streets that will recieve their
attention in due course of time.
A motion was made and earned
that the city construct a 30,000 gallon
reservoir of concrete for the holding
of water for street sprinkling pur
poses. The site for this reservoir has
not vet betn chosen, but the commit
tee on streets and publio property are
empowered to arrange for this and
secute a suitable location somewhere
in the vicinity of the power bouse.
Upon moticn, the same committee
was empowered to immediately locate
pipe line, secure right of way for
same, and ascertain the size of pipe
required and ordei the same in suffi
cient quantity to connect the well
with the reservoir, and also to adver
tise for bids for building reservoir
and diggiug ditch.
The committee on fire and water
was instructed to see to the extending
of the water main on Alkali street for
distance of at least three hundred feet
westward and have a hydrant put in.
(t seems that ad order was entered up
moie than a year ago to have this done
and it is understood that the water
company agreed to do it but the job
remains undone. This is necessary
to protect property on the west end of
this street that it ia impossible to
reach from the point of the nearest
hydrant at the present.
On motion, the committee on streets
and public property were instructed
to contract with Mr. 1. Jj. price for
the construction of a concrete crossing
on Center street, connecting the
pavements abuting the DroDtrtyof the
Christian church and that of J. P.
Conder. It is understood that this
crossing is to be built at a cost of
lone and Heppner mixed in two
games of baseball on Heppner grounds
last Saturday afternoon. The first
game was between the nines of the
grammar schools, resulting in a vic
tory for the home boys by a score of
10 to 8. The game bptween the High
School teams was a splenid contest,
Heppner winning '6 to 1. Errors in
the first inning by lone, let Heppner
have two tallies they were not in
titled to and up to the eighth it looke
like a ehut-out garre for lone
ueponer a pattery was jones an
Young and Ione's was O. Rietman
and A. Cochtan. You will seldom
see a better game played.
